SpaceWatch.Global is pleased to present the 30th episode in our podcast series The Space Cafe Podcast: Yvette Hopkins, Shetland Space Center

Episode 030 features a special guest Yvette Hopkins.

In the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, a little north of Scotland, there is a small island that you can cross by car in just two and a half hours. In the far north, there is not much going on, lush meadows as far as the eye can see. And sheep, of course. On closer inspection, however, there is one place with a most curious combination of buildings that piqued our interest: a spaceport with its own pub. Naturally, we got curious and did a little research and uncovered a most fascinating story.
